Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds reveal live date to support 2013 album release

The band have also sparked rumours of an appearance at Coachella festival in California

Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds have revealed plans for one live date in North America, set to follow the release of their ‘beautiful’ new album.

According to The Scenestar, the Australians will play Humphrey’s Concerts By The Sea in San Diego, California on April 16, 2013.

The date of the concert has sparked rumours that the band will also be playing the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, which next year takes place over two weekends, April 12-14 and 19-21, also in California.

In September, Cave confirmed that his band’s new album would be released at the start of next year.

Speaking on BBC Radio 6, the frontman said: “I’m really excited about that. We haven’t done one for a while.”

He added that working on the follow-up to 2008’s ‘Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!!’ was: “a real pleasure… to find[ing] the time to take off a significant amount of time from other projects, which were always supposed to be, kind of, extra-curricular. And just to get back with the Bad Seeds in a room and make a record.”

Of the content of the album, he said: “It’s really different. I mean, it doesn’t sound like anything the Bad Seeds have done before. It’s really good. It’s really very, very beautiful. It’s not a ballad record. It’s not like classic Bad Seed ballads. But it’s very, very beautiful and it’s far away from Grinderman and that kind of thing.”
